. the education system is riddled with problems. and you also see that there is an increasing public corruption. so the current president has been involved in a huge scandal involving his private home. so people look to nelson mandela and think theres with a leader. there was someone with real integrity. so i think that this is a moment for people to look back and reflect on where they've come from and how to get back on the right path. >> woodruff: and also by definition losing what i think you call the moral center for the country. >> well, i think for many people nelson pan della does represent a kind of moral center. and a choice to turn away from violence, to turn away from strife. and to turn away from racial divisions. and instead of standing in judgement of one another, to reconcile and to admit that we did terrible things to each other. but now we're ready to move on. and i think that was the great gift of nelson mandela. that he was able to bring people together in a way that made them feel that they could forgive and made them move on. >> woodruff: lydia, one other thing. you wrote t

problems. how do we make sure the student gets the cost of education? how do we address time demands? i believe that is one of the areas that has changed the most, the extent to which athletes are tied up in athletic preparation. we need to make sure students are not exploited. how do we address that? how do we address lifetime educational benefits? so, if we do get the right political restructuring that would allow us to address it, if we do not do that, that is on us. the third leg on the stool is that we shouldn't be the sole exclusive route to professional sports. there are other opportunities. i was sorry to see nfl europe go away. everybody can bring a lawsuit, that was an opportunity. everybody can bring a lawsuit, that is the american way. we can defend it. the courts decide what they decide. there is while you are in the ia process for that, but system, you ought to know what the rules are when you come in. we have work to do in that area. we have work to do in that area. i think i like for 18- and 19- year-old young people to have a choice. if they want to be here, that's grea

highlighting the fact that a lot of this job growth, good jobs, manufacturing, education, construction. so they say that those are signs that the economy is moving in the right direction. at the same time, as you point out, the white house looking at those numbers and using them to argue that unemployment insurance should be extended for 1.3 million americans. they point out that within those economic figures you can see 4 million americans have been unemployed for six months or more. here's what president obama had to say in his weekly address. take a listen. >> for many families it can be the difference between hardship and catastrophe. it makes a difference for a mother who suddenly doesn't know if she will be able to put food on the table for his kids or a father who lost his job and is looking for a new one. last year it ended 2.5 people out of poverty and cushioned the blow for many more. >> now, alex, republicans are making the opposite argument. they are saying that the low unemployment rate or relatively low unemployment rate speaks to the fact that the economy doesn't need more s

that is done here. and all the non-profits that call the arc home offer access to everything from education to health care to the safe shelter from the streets. which means you're harnessing the power of community. to expand opportunity for folks here in d.c. and your reflects the tradition that run through our history. the blood vessel we're greater together than on our own. over the last two months washington has been dominated by some contentious debates. i think it's fair to say. and between a reckless shut down by congressional republicans in an effort to repeal the affordable care act, and admitly poor execution on my administration's part on implementing the latest stage of the new law. it's not surprising the frustrations with the are at the all-time high. we know the frustrations run deeper than the most recent political battles. their frustration is rooted in their own daily battles fop make ends meet, to pay for college, buy a home, save for retirement. it's rooted in the nagging sense that no matter how hay work, the deck stacked against them. it's rooted in the fear they kids w

education for kids so she really understand what they're getting in to when they're online? >> i actually think that's a great idea. some people are initiated in the ways of the web. it would be great to have some guidelines and a few stops to look to chart it. i'm not convinced that people will look at kids being dumb online and see it as so different from kids being dumb off line. maybe as the internet penetrates our lives more and more, we'll have a sense of that's what kids do, and that's fine. >> meg, how does this compare to some of the legislation that is proposed in the e.u. right now? >> the update to the data protection regulation or the data protection directive '95 includes a right to be forgotten regardless of age. they talked about the data controller being obligated by the data subject upon request to delete information that identifies the data subject. the way it is written it is not restricted to things that you post, that you can take down. it reaches information that is about you, posted by others. >> so if you posted something unsavory about me, and i'm in the e.u. i c

of color, and workers with less education. that's not particularly surprising because these are the workers who even in a robust economy have the most difficulty getting jobs in the first place for a variety of reasons, including discrimination. the very fact of long-term unemployment is affecting these workers ability to get new jobs. i know many of you are cosponsors on legislation that would prohibit discrimination against the long-term unemployed, which is a measure we would encourage you to take up as soon as we can. but the focus is on extending benefits. finally, i want to stress again the importance of renewing the program, not just because of the workers who will be affected, but for the economy overall, for the labor market overall and for our society overall. we know unemployment insurance is one of the most effective economic stimuli that we have. cbo scored this just the other day and said if the program is renewed, it could account for as much as .3% in gdp growth and an additional 300,000 jobs. if it is not renewed, it will have the opposite effect. that is very damaging to o

and i phrase it around the access and the education and knowing what to do with the food once you get it and the ability to actually cook it and store it and prepare that food. but i would like to take it a step further and put on the conversation a little bit more and pose to the question of trying to answer how can you make it economically viable, if we are talking about the low income communitis that have the real high concentrations of poverty, such as the tender loin and 50 percent, and create the jobs around accessing the healthy food and give the folks the food and the opportunities to purchase the food and the sources and the example of that is the healthy corner store and that is going to expand to a meat market and going to supply the meat, and going to run that counter and i think that a lot of opportunity and we need to begin how to answer that and how can we answer that question. >> tell low, thanks for having me here today, my name is moxy and i am a physician in internal medicine in oakland and i am a university of utah public health student and i am here today because
